Founded in 2018, XDT Education provides training for all ages and abilities with our custom cutting-edge, proprietary curriculum following our XDT professional company model that is movement research based. We evaluate the professional dance world technique standards and incorporated them into the student company curriculum. Taught by professional company dancers from Xing Dance Theater, the most active and internationally awarded professional company based in Maryland.
Our mission is to bring professional dance education and production to young dancers by providing professional stage performance opportunities, and a long-term professional track learning plan to build their portfolios, thus preparing them to succeed in college dance major and/or for the professional dance world.
To support this, XDT Education includes a Student Dance Company to provide real life performances following a professional model. The XDT Student Company dancers are supported by a full scholarship and receive technique class, XDT repertory, and actively participate in the creation and rehearsal process for new productions. This helps the student build a self-evaluation system to set goals.
Since its founding, the Student Dance Company has performed at the DC Choreography Festival, Peabody Dance! Festival, Washington Wizards NBA Half Time Show, Spector Dance’s Choreographers Showcase in California, Detroit Dance City Festival, and the Singapore International Dance Festival. XDT Student Dance Company dancers have also performed at the Washington DC Global Perspectives Festival and Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival with the Xing Dance Theater.
The adult program is geared to those who desire to learn or enhance their skills, plus, the program provides professional performance opportunities. To foster community relationships, we launched a free community program for adults of all abilities to explore the joy of movement.
We also have the XDT Workshop chapter, that has taught master classes across the United States, Asia and Europe.
Our vision is to use Dance to bring people TOGETHER! Dance is universal and allows for expression and understanding.
